Dr. Ajay Kumar resigned a few days ago after the controversy that arose in the party after the Lok Sabha election results and the way he remarked against the senior leaders of the State Congress while resigning from the post since then, the speculation of his leaving the party was intensified. Dr. Ajay Kumar sent his resignation to Rahul Gandhi, who had resigned as the President of the National Congress. Ajay Kumar, in his resignation, mentioned the service of the Congress party from party spokesperson to state president (including the Lok Sabha and by-elections held during his tenure). At the same time, in his submitted resignation, he also accused some of the senior leaders of the party including Subodh Kant Sahay, Rameshwar Oraon, Pradeep Balmuchu, Chandrashekhar Dubey, Furkan Ansari, and working to keep the party interest in check for personal gain. In this year’s Lok Sabha elections, the Congress had left the seat of Jamshedpur for Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, so Dr Ajay Kumar did not contest. He had then said that he was leaving the Jamshedpur seat as part of the decision to strengthen the alliance and the party high command. In the Lok Sabha elections, the opposition including the Congress suffered a crushing defeat in Jharkhand. With Dr. Ajay joining the Aam Aadmi Party, speculation is rife that he will contest the assembly elections from Jamshedpur West. They are already preparing to contest elections.
